Did you know that green beans are among the riskiest vegetables to eat? A recent study from the Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center showed that green beans fall into the "very high risk" category due to being contaminated with toxic pesticides. One of the chemicals it was most often contaminated with is acephate (and its by-products) which are associated with nausea, dizziness, and nervous system damage.
Other examples of produce that were found to show high concentrations of pesticides include:
- Bell/hot peppers
- Sweet Potatoes
To lower risks such as cross-contamination and food poisoning, it is important to practice good food safety techniques and thoroughly wash and clean fruits, vegetables, seafood, and meat. CitroBio Fresh Food Wash can be used on produce, seafood, sushi, and meat of all types to remove contaminants.
